Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Thumbs up

Thomas~

A really nice note you wrote in response to that lady. I hope it settled her down. And very good point you made about your cat helping to keep the squirrel damage down.
I have a cat who is now about 16. In her youth she was quite a rat hunter. We used to live in an apartment complex in So. CA that had a bad rat/mice problem for the simple reason that the lush, tropical foliage they used to decorate the landscaping attracted them. A lot of palm tree/rats. I used to joke that they should give me a discount on my rent for all of the rats that she helped to eliminate.

Good Luck on that!!

Thanks Shelley.

My neighbor reminded me that we also have lots of mice and other vermin around here because of all the water and vegetation around it, which Noir also helps to keep under control.

I tried to make him an indoor cat in the beginning but he just wouldn't do it. He knows he must be in for the night. Usually he's good at returning home by then.

Default The Necessity of Symbols

My book of poetry, The Necessity of Symbols, will soon be available in both paperback ($5.99) and on Kindle ($3.99). As always, it bears my body, mind, soul slant that stems from Christian mystical tradition. Here's the inscription:

But now, to the best of our ability we use symbols
appropriate to things Divine, and from these
again we elevate ourselves, according to our degree,
to the simple and unified truth of the spiritual vision.
Pseudo-Dionysius, On Divine Names


The book is 100 pp. Unlike lots of modern poetry, it's approachable (and not drivel). Many of the poems have been published in various widely circulated magazines and journals.

I was shopping today when a white rescue poodle in someone's cart caught my attention. I looked into his eyes and thought, "You're a male, aren't you?"

I walked on. A few feet later, I heard him say, "I'm unhappy." Not something I experience often.

So I looked at a couple of items and decided to go back to see him. I asked the owner if he wasn't a male.

"Yes," she said.

"He just told me he's unhappy." I reached out to pet his face.

"He doesn't like going shopping with me," she said. "He hates staying home even more."

We talked awhile, and she wanted a copy of Baltho.

She went before me into the checkout line. Just as soon as she'd paid, I noticed how happy he looked.

I posted this on my FB page and am getting quite a bit of discussion. Come over and join us--or start a discussion here. One person had a hissy fit and unfriended me. But every time I've brought up sensible gun control laws she overreacts and thinks I'm out to take her guns. https://www.facebook.com/thomas.watson.790

I forgot that I didn't have the Library of Congress number for The Necessity of Symbols. Otherwise, it would have been released last week as promised. So... Still waiting.

I just realized that the Library of Congress is shut down too. No wonder I keep waiting and waiting for their number!

If you buy a paperback copy of Baltho, the Dog Who Owned a Man from Amazon you can now also buy the Kindle edition of it for $2.99. A real deal, since the Kindle by itself costs $9.27.

Got the Library of Congress number so I'll be able to release the new book maybe tonight or tomorrow.

So, tell me readers, do you think I should wait till Monday? Or does it matter?
